Two Choices

Still remember the days in school?  When the final exam is coming and you are still not well prepared.  Are you the person that says
  1. I need to study hard even though time is not enough, just try my best.
  2. Oh man,  I will fail the exam, and think about many "if-s" what will happen next when you fail the exam.

In Psychology, there is something called "self fulfilling prophecy", which is a prediction that directly or indirectly causes itself to become true by your behavior / actions. If you keep thinking something is going bad, it could eventually go bad, because your thinking is sufficient enough to affect your behavior.  And it could be yourself that eventually that force something originally good to become bad.

If today you have something you cannot control in your life, instead of being paranoid by your thoughts, do you want to spend a minute today and cast that burden and worry back to our Heavenly Father? He cares about you. And you always have choices.
